All retractable awnings, retractable patio cover systems and other sun, wind, rain, bug and snow protection systems are not created equal
That's our motto for a reason!
Retractable patio and deck awnings and retractable patio and pergola covers are deceptively simple. The smooth lines, the hidden motors, durable, long lasting fabrics and sensors – it all looks easy, but the quality is in the details.
Part of the detail is the quality of components, and we have taken every effort to find the best TÜV Product Approved, CE certified, Beaufort scale wind load rated retractible awning and retractable patio cover suppliers from around the world, from Germany to Italy, France, Spain and Austria. Asian products, especially those from China, are not offered due to poor quality, lack of engineering certifications and quality control issues.
Part of quality, though, is in the company you buy from. RetractableAwnings.com is a family-owned business and has been family owned and operated for 31 years - first as a "brick and mortar" business and now as both a "brick and mortar" business and an online business. We're the buyers, the assemblers, the distributor, the customer service reps. We're proud of our stellar Better Business Bureau A+ rating, Angies List A rating (highest on both websites) and low rate of returns (none since we begun selling online in 1998) because it means we take the time to serve our customers well.
RetractableAwnings.com is committed to four goals:
- Excellent support
- Superior quality offering many unique and exclusive products and options
- Affordable competitive pricing
- State of the art technology (e.g. our proprietary awning selector, fabric selector [being updated and coming soon] and 3D rendering technology)
From our factory in Miami Gardens, Florida, we've supplied high-quality, custom-assembled retractible awnings to every state in the US, and internationally from Canada to Bermuda to the Caribbean, Central America, the US Coast Guard outpost in Japan, homeowners in Malta, Architects in Thailand and general contractors in Australia and many other countries. Our customers range from home owners to Architects, Exterior Designers, Interior designers, Interior Decorators, General Contractors, Landscape Architects, Restaurants, Bistros, Nightclubs, Pubs, Business park owners, Commercial building developers, Cubhouses, Landscapers, Cruise lines, Casino operators, Institutions, Governments and much more.
Retractable awnings and other sun, wind, rain, snow and bug protection systems (like canopies, patio covers, window awnings, vertical drop awnings, telescopic awnings) have been our business for over three decades. We know the details that help our customers find the perfect awning, patio cover, canopy, window awning or vertical drop awning.
We're all under the same sun, rain, wind, rain and snow. Retractableawnings.com products offer the best way to dramatically reduce UV damage, limit glare, enhance natural lighting, control heat and protect from heavy rain, hail and snow. These details – from the science of light control to style trends for awnings – are just some of the things that we find fascinating about our industry. Retractable awnings and retractable patio and pergola covers and other types of sun, wind, rain, bug and snow protection systems really aren't created equal – check out our educational university pages to get a taste of the difference at RetractableAwnings.com.
